Eve McGivern This is quite possibly the most dark and harrowing slab of gothic doom I have ever heard. It is brutal in it's power and passion, and deserves to be played loud; minimal screaming with a darkly gorgeous sound. Favorite track: erosion.

No visible light Black hole of humanity Forever sleeps Viral culture Destructive tradition Inactive Sun Carries in the frost Our silence is present Frozen tongue Keeps the Earth cold Our fire burns through the darkness Inactive Sun Carries in the frost Our fault is absent Frozen tongue Bares the blame Barren fields Will fall under flames Beyond the physical Catalyst of oppression Burn in silence It carries no weight Black hole of humanity Forever sleeps Viral culture Destructive tradition Conditioned existence Forever sleeps Forced ascension Witness progress

erosion 11:00
Suspended in blackness Unversed in secrets of the Sun Bound to the Earth I never sought out the sky Grey skies cascading Burrow underneath Choking on the soil I never sought out the sky No need for air All we need is vision Asleep Erosion through routine Bow to the birth of the drought Conceived in the knowledge of our thirst

white halos 14:32
Hear the word before eyes open Guided before you feel the earth Follow the cloud to their end Golden crowns shroud silver tongues Erode under white halos The wind is not owned Keep your eyes to the ground Sleep as the sky Sleep as it burns Lay raised hands to rest Their breath holds no truth Taste of blood in our mouths Black forest rises from scorched earth Erode under white halos The wind is not owned Erode under white halos Keep your eyes to the ground

MOURNUNG CLOAK "no visible light" LP
vendetta records # 84

credits

released January 5, 2015

Greensboro, NC’s Mourning Cloak, made up of members of Torch Runner, Graf Orlock & Braveyoung (Giant). No Visible Light clocks in at just over 33 minutes of crushing riffs, devastating beats and thunderous vocals.

“No Visible Light.” The title is apt, because this is an ominous cloud blocking the sun, raining down charcoal dust, black mud, and infant ash on us all.
Their Facebook page refers to their music as “funeral doom/punk,” but I only hear the former in this track. But this doesn’t sulk through the cemetery, it grooves hard enough to split the catacombs in half, releasing the crypt bats into the air. After the quickly dissipating opening ambience the guitars crawl from open graves and shake the rust off their bones with godless black-and-blues riffs. There is suck a thick layer of slime and sludge on this song that it reminds me of that barrier of grime and giant centipedes Indiana Jones’ love interest sticks her hand through in Temple of Doom. If you don’t get that reference, here it is in non-geek language: This song is nasty and unpleasant in the most sadistically delightful ways possible. The vocalist sounds like he’s plummeting into a bottomless pit, shaking hands with the devil to make a pact to finally break his fall. This is some seriously bleak stuff that fans of Bongzilla and Cough should feverishly inhale. ( mister growl )
